Mystery Bird – July

The drooped wings, the grey body feathering all pointed to Cuckoo and that’s exactly what it was. Every single person that entered last month got it right. Below is a picture of the same bird taken (badly) by digiscoping at Lakenheath RSPB in Suffolk earlier this year.

We move on now to July’s mystery bird.

When the warm summer months are here quite often bird watchers look elsewhere for entertainment. This is reflected in this month’s mystery competition. As I stated back in January it may not always be birds we consider. Give me your entry by e-mail to carl@wildlifetoursandeducation.co.uk and the answer will be given next month.

Cuckoos Everywhere

The Cuckoo Flower is so named because of its timely appearance when the bird of the same name returns to our shores. We didn’t see or hear a Cuckoo in Scotland on this year’s tours the unseasonably cold northerlies saw to that but we saw the banks of the Spey littered with the flowers on our last weekend.
